Untitled Two-Man Tokyo Tech Show 
Our cliché cop-out of a name is still holding strong... it might stick. If anyone's got something better, leave a comment and if we use your suggestion we'll send you a sweet iPhone 5 case from SEIDIO.

Episode 1: Geektastic in Akihabara

Episode 2: Shiny in Shibuya

Episode 3: Shinjuku
This week, AkihabaraNews contributor Nayalan Moodley and editor Reno J. Tibke stood around in beautiful, eclectic Shinjuku waxing geeky on the latest tech news.

Shinjuku, another of Tokyo's cultural and economic hearts, is home to government, world-class shopping, throngs of intriguing weirdos, the world's busiest train station, the headquarters of gigantic Japanese companies, a variety of street performers, scandalous Kabuki-cho, and, what is arguably the best standing-only noodle shop in Japan (top secret). And there's so much more - we'll definitely be going back.

While visiting the Tokyo Metropolitan Government building's 45th-floor observation deck, our hosts met a lovely young American couple on the last night of a 5-month honeymoon. They consented to an interview, during which it was discovered that they had the exact same Sony RX100 camera as our editor. This of course led to much bonding.

Covered Stories Include:

Do give us your suggestions for future locations, your feedback, your criticism, let us know if Reno should grow back his awful beard, any corrections, call-outs, tips. If you just wanna make fun of us, we can take it. Trolls with flair and originality will receive extra points and a cookie.

Have a watch. Share. Let us know. Maybe win an iPhone case.

With Thanko's Night-Vision Scope Camera, you can see clearly something that you cannot usually see in the dark.

There is a 7-level adjustable infrared mode to see objects in dark places. A 3X power telescope and 2X digital zoom lens enable you to observe distant objects. Also, you are able to shoot still/moving images with it so that it might be fun to use it on your friends - scare them at night-time and record their reaction!

It is also usable in the day time as well by using the infrared cut filter attached to the body.

Japanese Robot Movies - AkihabaraNews.com
Gymnast robot celebrates Tokyo’s successful 2020 Olympic bid with a triple backflip off the bar, and back onto the bar, industrial robots play with racecars, and a monolingual mini-humanoid speaks the first robotic words from the International Space Station. Three J-robots in under 4 minutes!

We’ve been in love with Team Skeletonics’ human-powered exoskeleton for years, and all throughout, it's pretty much been the same mechanical and aesthetic configuration. But it now looks like they’ve been refining in the background, and might be bringing something new out to play.

Introduced way back in 2008, seven years after the Segway, Toyota's Winglet finally got to come out and play last week; practical trials are underway. Like the Segway (pretty much exactly), it’s a single rider, self-balancing mobility device. Toyota calls it a robot. Yeah... No.
Thanko has just released a miniature action camera that you can attach it anywhere you want. Attach it to a thing like a radio-controlled plane, glasses, helmet, and even your dog's collar, and make creative motion movies.

At Keio University, the Takahashi Laboratory, in the Department of System Design Engineering (Faculty of Science and Technology) is doing research to develop products and systems that are useful to society, through an approach called model-based control.
